Depending on where you live, it is just a matter of weeks before school is once again in session. In preparation for the back-to-school shopping season that for many has already begun, HP has gone and revamped its Pavilion all-in-one (AIO) lineup with new digs and upgraded components. And rather than focus on a single task, the retooled systems can be flexibly configured to tackle a variety of subjects, even gaming. "We listened to our customers when redesigning the HP Pavilion All-in-One to ensure we’re bringing features consumers crave, making it the perfect overall family PC," said Kevin Frost, vice president and general manager, Consumer Personal Systems, Displays & Accessories at HP....

Mainstream notebooks, laptops, and convertible devices have been significantly refined over the last few generations. The $500-$900 price range generally features laptops that are thin and light, built well, have decent battery life, and deliver solid multimedia experiences. Intel has a stranglehold on the CPUs and graphics in many of these mid-level systems, so PC makers seem to be emphasizing design differences lately. As important as performance is, you may well choose your next laptop because it converts into a mode or use case that fits your needs, rather than because of its technical specifications. HP aims the Pavilion x360 series at buyers who are looking for a non-traditional laptop.... Read more...
Hewlett-Packed today unveiled a refresh Pavilion lineup that is geared towards general consumers. The new products encompass both all-in-ones and convertibles, the latter of which are available in a wide range of colors to fit your personal design tastes. Starting things off is the Pavilion x360, which has previously only been available in 11.6-inch and 13.3-inch form-factors. HP obviously sees the customer appeal of this design with a larger display, so the company is introducing new 15.6-inch screen size. HP says that this new generation of Pavilion x360s are 12 to 14 percent thinner than their predecessors and lighter at the same time. The 11.6- and 13.3-inch models start at 2.93 pounds and...

HP expanded its gaming laptop selection today, announcing that the Pavilion Gaming notebook will be joining its well-received HP Omen. The new laptop takes aim squarely at casual gamers by providing reasonable gaming hardware at a more tolerable price.Where the HP Omen starts at nearly $1,500, the new Pavilion Gaming notebook is expected to start at $899.99 when it becomes available on November 8th. The new notebook has a dark grey or black chassis, but loads of green LED lighting give it a decidedly gamer look. It has a 15.6-inch, HD display at the starting price, but you’ll be able to bump up to a full HD IPS display with touch if you’re willing to pay more.As for its guts, the Pavilion Gaming...

Wait, it’s back-to-school season already? I thought kids were still in school? Either my calendar is wrong or Hewlett-Packard is just way ahead of schedule with its 2015 line of back-to-school computers. The new laptops and convertibles encompass three different lines including the Pavilion x360, ENVY x360, and the venerable Pavilion notebook family. We’ll start off with the Pavilion x360 line which includes refreshed 11- and 13-inch models. The 11-inch model (HD display) features a fanless design and can be equipped with Intel Pentium or Celeron processors. However, those craving a little bit more performance will probably want to opt for the Intel Core M-5Y10C processor (which helps the tiny... Read more...
If you're shopping a new system, the launch of Intel's Ivy Bridge platform can't come soon enough. In anticipation of the launch, Hewlett-Packard is getting its ducks in a row, which includes quietly revealing three new notebooks built around Intel's upcoming platform, as well as a fourth sporting Sandy Bridge hardware inside. The first is an HP Pavilion dv4-5000 with an Intel Core i7 3610QM processor clocked at 2.3GHz. Details are fairly light, but we know it's a 14-inch laptop with a 1TB hard drive (5400 RPM) and Nvidia GeForce GT 630M graphics. Then there's the HP Pavilion dv6-7000, a 15.6-inch laptop with the same processor and discrete graphics. Storage options include a 750GB (dv6-7019tx)... Read more...

We pinged three system builders -- Dell, Hewlett Packard, and iBuyPower -- and asked each one to send us a back-to-school PC equally suited for work and play (read: Mainstream). What we're looking for is a flexible configuration that's able to put its nose to the grindstone during the week to tackle multimedia projects, whether they be for school or for work, yet capable of running wild on the weekends with sufficient pixel pushing power to satisfy our jones for blowing something (or someone) up, in the virtual world, of course. Our request leaves a lot up for interpretation, and wouldn't you know it, each vendor took a different path towards the same goal, yet they all chose Intel's Sandy Bridge... Read more...
Alice Cooper sang it wrong, school isn't out forever; with Labor Day in the rear view mirror, school is back in session. That means having to stock up on supplies and investing in essential items to get through the school year; like beer, condoms, and a new PC. You're on your own with the first two, but you've come to the right place for guidance on a new system.

Another month, another wave of new notebooks from HP. Today, the PC powerhouse has expanded their consumer and business lines with 11 new models, all of which utilize AMD's new VISION technology. That's an affordable line with plenty of punch for most people -- the A-series APU is a step above Fusion, and it's being used more and more frequently in smaller, lighter full-size notebooks. The HP Pavilion dv-series is seeing an across-the-board update, with the dv4, dv6 and dv7 getting CoolSense, True Vision HD webcam, and HP Beats Audio (on the dv6 and dv7 only). HP tells us that the DV-series offers a 2x graphics performance increase compared with prior-generation machines with integrated graphics,... Read more...
Intel's Sandy Bridge is definitely the platform of the moment. Every notebook maker in existence is doing everything they can to get the newer chipsets into their machines, and while HP has already rolled SB out in a number of units, what's not to love about one more? The company has just made official the Pavilion G6s, a colorful new machine with a 15.6" (1366x768) display, and your choice of Core i3, i5 or i7 Sandy Bridge power. There's also 6GB of memory, a 750GB hard drive, optional AMD Radeon HD 6470M graphics and your choice of four different colors. All of that's on the high end; if you'd like a more modest build, it can be ordered now starting at $550.... Read more...
Earlier in the month, HP announced a number of new business and consumer notebooks. Now, it's time for the company's desktop line to get a bump of their own. This evening, HP has revealed a newly refreshed line of desktop PCs, including redesigned Pavilion consumer desktops that have seriously stepped up in the style department. These machines have a glossy, black front panel layered over a metallic base, not to mention sliding front panels to hide ports, and select models have a valet tray integrated into the top and equipped with USB ports. You'll also find Beats Audio and HP LinkUp on select models, and of course, Intel's newest Core CPUs are here. The Pavilion p7 series is the bargain choice,... Read more...
What began as a trickle -- as AMD finally introduced a shipping version of the long-awaited Fusion platform -- has turned into a steady stream, and we're definitely excited to see APUs, as AMD calls the product, finally making an impact. AMD had played up the idea of an Accelerated Processing Unit for years, and now, it's clearly a reality. Lenovo's ThinkPad X120e, which we reviewed a few months ago, instantly became one of our favorite ultraportables, and now HP has what appears to be a rival machine, of sorts. The HP Pavilion dm1z is an 11.6" machine, that is a touch larger than the myriad 10" netbooks already on the market, and honestly, we're struggling with what to classify this machine... Read more...
At this point, there's no shame in saying it: the floodgates have opened up for AMD's Fusion.

HP announced a handful of updates to the Pavilion line of notebooks. First up are the HP Pavilion dv6 and dv7 notebooks, which feature second-generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processors and optional AMD Radeon 6000M graphics. These notebooks will come with HP CoolSense Technology, USB 3.0, and on-board quad speakers.

Next up is the new HP Pavilion g-series which targets the everyday user. The HP Pavilion g4, g6 and g7 offer full connectivity for surfing the internet and connecting... Read more...
Don't ever accuse HP of not being on top of things. The computer company has just revealed quite a few new machines tonight, with a couple of them being firsts of their kind. Of course, a new line of notebooks wouldn't be a new line of notebooks without a bit of 3D mixed in, and the HP Envy 17 3D offers just that. It's the first 17" notebook to support 1080p 3D and Blu-ray, and that's just the beginning. Internally, this one features a Core i7 CPU, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 graphics and up to 2TB of storage. The HP Envy 14 Beats Edition is the same HP Envy 14 the world knows and loves, but with a special audio tweak by Dr. Dre and friends that supposedly makes the sound quality Beatalicious....

One for the business set, one for the gamer set. We like the style, HP. In order to not alienate one segment or another, Hewlett-Packard has decided to match their ProBook refresh today with a similar update on the gaming side. The company's Envy line, which evolved from their acquisition of Voodoo last decade, is seeing two serious new introductions today, while the Envy 13 of last year is leaving for good (it seems).The new Envy 14 and Envy 17 reflect the company's “MUSE” (materials, usability, sensory appeal and experiences) design philosophy of fusing a rich mix of materials that create textured finishes, easy-to-use features for improved usability, a blend of artisan elements for sensory...

We've heard that Intel may have a few new Atom processors on tap for release later this year, so it makes sense to see AMD propping up its own low-end, low-power lineup. Rather than unveil them alone, however, it seems as if Advanced Micro Devices is enlisting the assistance of Hewlett-Packard, as the newest Athlon Neo and Turion Neo processors are surfacing in the all-new Pavilion dv2z notebook.Beginning this week, consumers in the market for a new ultraportable can find the aforementioned machine on sale, and while the base configuration arrives with the Neo MV-40, you can opt to upgrade to the Athlon Neo X2 L335 (1.6GHz) or Turion Neo X2 L625 (also 1.6GHz). Both of these chips boast a dual-core... Read more...
Man, talk about depressing. Some students aren't even out for summer break yet, and already Hewlett-Packard is issuing systems for next school year. For whatever reason, the HP Pavilion dv2z and the Pavilion dv6t notebooks are ushering in what we can only imagine to be the summer leg of year-round school, with the former checking in at least than 1-inch thick and boasting a 12.1" LED panel. Furthermore, it packs an optional Blu-ray drive, 500GB HDD, a dual-core AMD CPU, discrete graphics and a starting tag of $599.The dv6t (starts at $649) arrives with HP's own MediaSmart software, a 16" LED display, HD playback support and a separate numeric keypad. Furthermore, there's the HP Pavilion dv6z... Read more...

It appears there are a number of threads at HP's support forums.  These forums posts first started in June 2007, and there is no official HP solution yet.  In fact, customers are helping themselves, or at least trying, but there appears to be little or no HP response on the forums.Tipped off by a reader, David Berlind investigates what appears to be a serious problem with the Wi-Fi feature on some Pavilion notebooks. Despite many customer complaints listed on HP's website over a period of nearly five months, there's been little response from HP. Instead, customers have banded together on the forum to figure out remedies for the problems.Disappointingly, some... Read more...
